Yellowstone Natl Park Travel Guide

Yellowstone Natl Park Hotel Overview

All loding options within Yellowstone’s boundaries, including campsites, cabins and hotel rooms, are owned by Xanterra Parks & Resorts, the country’s largest park-based hotel operator (phone 866-439-7375; http://www.yellowstonenationalparklodges.com). The properties lack the modern conveniences found in many accommodations (none have Internet access, and some lack TVs or even telephones), but they make up for it in rustic charm—and, most importantly, proximity to the park’s natural wonders.

Yellowstone is the oldest national park in the world—and still the most famous. It has gorgeous mountains, abundant wildlife and placid lakes set within a multicolored land of steam and waterfalls. The unique qualities of the area were recognized when Yellowstone National Park was established in 1872, 18 years before Wyoming became a state.   Click here to see the full Yellowstone Natl Park report »

Yellowstone covers an area the size of the states of Rhode Island and Delaware. Most of the park lies in the state of Wyoming, with thin strips to the north and west that are part of Montana and Idaho. Despite its concentration of thermal wonders, the park is more than geysers and mud pots. Surprisingly, it contains several vegetation zones, ranging from the northern desert found between Gardiner and Mammoth to the alpine tundra of Mount Washburn. In between are grasslands, forests, marshy riverbanks and alpine lakes.  Click here to see the full Yellowstone Natl Park report »

The geothermal activity at Yellowstone began more than 600,000 years ago with a cataclysmic volcanic eruption that deposited a layer of ash across much of North America. What remained was a caldera, 30 mi/48 km wide by 45 mi/72 km long, and a treasure trove of thermal anomalies that continue to be fueled by subterranean volcanic activity. Evidence of human habitation in the area can be traced back as far as 6000-9000 BC. Archaeological research indicates that groups of Shoshone lived within the park during the past 1,500 years and that they were present in the area when white explorers first visited.  Click here to see the full Yellowstone Natl Park report »

Yellowstone is a sightseer's paradise, and at 2.2 million acres/900,000 hectares, there's plenty to see. In their eagerness to visit the park's highlights, some people just drive around the Grand Loop, only leaving their vehicles to eat, sleep and see Old Faithful erupt. With just a little more effort, by including short hikes and visits to museums, you can dramatically enhance your experience.   Click here to see the full Yellowstone Natl Park report »

Nightlife in Yellowstone itself revolves around campfires and evening ranger programs, although hotels and inns have bars and sitting lounges with soft music playing in the background. If you want more lively entertainment—live music, gambling, movies, symphonies, art galleries, festivals and plays—you'll have to head to the gateway communities of Red Lodge, Cody, Jackson and West Yellowstone. A stop at each town's chamber of commerce will help you navigate the offerings.  Click here to see the full Yellowstone Natl Park report »
